The New Rochelle library is a hub for the community. With an impressive array of activities, classes, and monthly concerts in the Ossie Davis Theater, this library has got it all. In addition to a substantial children's book section, there is also a park outside (the "library green") with benches and an area of green space where kids can play and adults can take refuge from the surrounding city. The library regularly schedules book discussions, computer classes, craft workshops, monthly book sales, concerts, films, lectures, author visits and more. There are many preschool programs and homework help for kids and teens.
